FOTD: Trying New Things #3

one little vice beauty blog: makeup reviews

If you're anything like me then you'll love to experiment with new makeup. Each month I get the opportunity to try quite a lot of new makeup and it's always really fun to choose some of my favourite new discoveries to share with you. So today I've gathered together four new makeup products that I've been trying out this month and shared my thoughts on each of them. 

one little vice uk beauty blog: natural undereye concealer tone corrector

I'm always looking for natural beauty products that I can swap into my everyday makeup routine. Docteur Rendaud's Apricot BB Eyes is a colour correcting product that helps disguise the appearance of undereye circles. It only comes in one "universal" shade which is a light, slightly peachy-pink shade. It has a very thick consistency that makes it a little bit difficult to blend if you draw it straight onto your undereye area. I prefer to draw some on one of my fingers, rub two of my fingers together to warm up the product and then I pat it onto my skin. I find that the heat from my fingers really helps to make the product more blendable. It does a good job of colour correcting and really changes the appearance of my under eyes, but it isn't a straight up concealer so I'd definitely couple this with a light concealer for maximum coverage. However, if you have very dark, blue or purple toned bags under your eyes then this will definitely make a noticeable improvement. Docteur Renaud's BB Eye Cream isn't available online, but can be ordered from Skin Evolution by calling this number01452 864574

one little vice beauty blog: affordable high quality brow pencil

I started using Glo & Ray's Eyebrow Pencil in the shade Terra Brown earlier this month and it has pretty much been love at first application. It marries together so many good qualities - the product itself is really pigmented but when you apply it gently it creates really natural looking hair-like strokes. Once you've applied it, the product sets down and then doesn't budge throughout the day. For the price I really don't think you could find a better brow pencil!

one little vice beauty blog: high coverage mineral foundation talc free

This pressed powder from Claudia Louch is one of those products that I didn't know I needed but now I've tried it I just couldn't go back! It's a talc-free powder that's pigmented enough that you can actually use it as a mineral foundation. The powder is incredibly finely milled and just glides onto the skin leaving behind a matte base. It doesn't give very high coverage, but it does create a more even and smooth canvas upon which you can apply other products. Personally, I'm not a massive fan of mineral foundations so I like using this powder to add extra coverage to specific areas of my face. It works really well to set your undereye concealer and add a little bit of brightening coverage. I also like using it across my t-zone as it not only mattifies but also helps to blur the appearance of my pores and imperfections. It's definitely an expensive investment, but if you're a fan of powder foundations or are looking for a really high-quality talc-free powder then this is definitely a good option to consider.

Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge in Pale Pink* | rrp £17.50

I featured Bobbi Brown's Pot Rouge in Pale Pink in a post earlier this month but I promised that I'd show what it looks like when used on my lips. As you can see in my photos below, it's a really pretty and wearable everyday shade and because the formula is so creamy it works really well on the lips. It doesn't last for ages and ages but because there's a big mirror inside the lid it's really easy to reapply - and it doubles up as a handy compact mirror.
